    Down by the river.

    Santa was nice with me. He knocked at my door and brought me a new iPad Retina just as I decided to buy the Intuos Creative Stylus.
    Well. Since I doodle around at every free minute and it came to that finished work.

    First I made a ruff traced image from a picture found on the Internet using the oil brush (with the stylus);
    preset was "Thick Gloss" were I put "auto clean" to "no".

    The picture was 1024 x 768 in size. Then I worked the file in ArtRage 4 on my computer, leaving the iPad and painting the water with the knife.

    Used a lot the sticker spray. Smoothed out the stones with the Felt Pen (Hard Tip), created a layer for the grass, the foreground foliage
    and the background foliage.
    I had to create foliage and grass stickers from scratch to do that.
    (If you are interested in those sticker foliages, I can put them in a next art pack, I forgot to bring it in my shared artpack I posted here today).
    Had problems with the dead branch (on the top right of the picture) that was not well defined from the beginning.
    The image was increased at a size of 3600 x 2400 at 300 dpi.

    Oh, I love this, that scene could be just up the road from where I live.
    It was interesting to see how you went about it.

    Great sense of lighting. It feels outdoors yet it also has an intensity in it that suggests an artist's eye. Good one! Kind of place I used to hike to.
